  • green tea drinkers

    Is there any green tea out there that has more flavor than that of the hot water it is steeped in? I am primarily a coffee drinker, but I also enjoy teas. There are many flavorful, enjoyable kinds, including the herbal ones. Out of curiosity I drink a cup of the green stuff from time to time searching for something other than its alleged medicinal benefits. Is there any flavorful green tea?

    I'm a green tea drinker. Here are links to some of the brands I really like for their taste. Amazon may carry these too.

    http://www.wteashop.com/Wissotzky-Green-Teas.html ( my favorite is the Green tea with Nana which is Green tea + Spearmint )

    https://www.itoen.com/itoen-matcha-g...2#.Wg94MRiZOt8 ( its a powdered green tea in very fine steeping bags so the powder doesn't seep out )

      Have you tried Rooibos Red Tea. No caffeine. I drink it with stevia sweetner, hot in the morning and cold in the afternoon/evening.

          I drink mostly black teas, and am especially fond of an early harvest Darjeeling. It is called the "Champagne of Teas". Have you tried it?

          For a green tea you might want to try Japanese green tea with toasted brown rice (Genmaicha). This is especially good as iced tea, but I also like it hot. You can buy it on-line or at most Asian markets. I also like Jasmine green tea.

            I opened this thread intending to make the same suggestion of genmaicha! Love that stuff.

              Is it wrong to ask about green tea's effects on kidneys and bladders on this thread?
              Thanks

                I'm a sucker for a good jasmine pearl green tea. I think I'm addicted to the scent, so comforting.

                  +1 for jasmine green tea, although I prefer oolong which is something like halfway between green tea and black tea with a little more caffeine than green tea and a little more flavor.

                    Other than the fact that green teas are lower in caffeine than black tea or coffee, not much. Caffeine is an irritant for some peoples' bladders, and can result in bladder spasm and leakage for those who are sensitive to it.

                        Thanks for the suggestions. I am going to try a jasmine green first. Then, maybe the spearmint green. My regular tea favorite is the orange pekoe from Ceylon.

                          I'm a former coffee drinker and man do I miss it, but it makes my bladder go nuts and decaf just isn't the same. I drink black and green tea every day. I've been making Yorkshire red and drinking it with milk, and while I'm waiting, I make myself some matcha tea. Yorkshire red is a blend and its really good with milk, but I also really like black tea from Yunnan. Also drink rooibos too on occasion.

                          Yorkshire red, I got off of amazon. 30 bucks for 600 tea bags. Last a little under a year with me making 2 cups a day.

                          Yunnan black tea and others. https://yunnansourcing.us/ Yunnan is very distinct. Also try some pu-erh tea, it looks like coffee, but its not universally liked for taste.

                          All my green teas loose and matcha I get from http://www.yuuki-cha.com/ love, their different senchas, and hojicha is really good too.

                          For rooibos and some herbal teas I do http://www.adagio.com/ their Yunnan jig is pretty good too.

                          Id invest into a electric water heater. That way you don't have to wait for water to boil its ready for you on demand.

                          You got some options when it comes to teas ! haha.

                            Also a former cofffe drinker. Been suffering from a neurogenic bladder and crazy bladder spasms , leakage and pain.
                            Yesterday i saw this thread so im switching from strong coffee twice a day to green tea.
                            Still not sure if the green tea caffeine will be bad for me but hoping its a healthy beverage to take coffes place in the morning

                              I go between "Barry's" Irish back tea and decent quality coffee. I rarely have more than 2 cups a day... more when I was younger.
